The result is a contemporary and easy-to-wear floral blouse in a rich olive green. With a cowl neck and an asymmetrical lace bottom, this piece will take you from day to night and back again.

    Anyone fortunate enough to have traveled in North Africa can attest to how delicious the traditional tagine is. Both the name of the cuisine and the name of the dish that is used to prepare it, tagine is a Berber meal that often includes meat or poultry, a mix of aromatic spices, and additions such as raisins or dates, preserved lemons, and almonds—all served over couscous. The base doubles as the serving dish, and removing the cone-shaped lid at the table always makes for a dramatic and mouth-watering presentation.

    Many pre-Columbian cultures have examples of woven fabrics dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Guatemala is known for a type of weaving called double-ikat, which comes from an Indonesian word meaning “to bind.” In Ikat, threads are tie-dyed before being strung on the loom—this predetermines the pattern that will be created. Ikat can be used to create textiles of astonishingly intricate detail, as well as soft, blended patterns like on this punchy purple tote.
